Hacker? Super spy? Invisible person? How can this be?

Recommended Posts

This member, who has not visited for over three years, somehow changed their profile picture.  Without visiting.  Spooky...

Just curious.

She probably had a “gravitar” (globally recognized avatar) linked to her profile here.  She could update it, and it would ripple through all the various forums she’s a member of, all without actually signing into each of the forums.  Either that, or she’s a super spy.

Here's another one.  I think that the site is somehow connected to some sort of wedding or dating site.  It's another couple, joined in 2015.  Hybridz had a similar problem where some users Twitter comments got posted on the site.  It was weird.  Exposed some people's alternate lives.

And another.  I'll collect them.  They all seem to be from 2015.

Here's a horsey.  Alright, I don't want to fill the page with weirdness.  No more.

Hybridz uses the same forum software and has the same thing going on, but with different people.  The internet is a scary place for young men...

Is this when we changed formats?  Maybe so and that's the issue. Keep digging Inspector Clouseau, you'll get to the bottom of this malfeasance. 

Just saw your hybridz post. Young men?  Colts too! LOL

This is normal if you are using the Facebook login.  Facebook profile pic changes are sync'd automatically in the background.

Hey Mike. Glad you posted as I'm gonna ask you a question about facebook. I'm on there the past two months selling some stuff on a local yard sale page. I'm getting 10 to 20 junks per day!  Never happened before and I've had that handle since '94. 

Is it facebook in your opinion?  Thank you for a reply. Cliff

Coincidence that they're all 2015 with zero activity!  Freaky!

I gotta post this one.  Don't look if you fear clowns...  And another 2015er.  Weird that all of these people joined in 2015 then never posted a single thing.  They also seem just weird, generally.

Where are you getting the junk messages?  On Facebook?   

Facebook has gone downhill in my opinion, it's full of fake accounts and hard for me to know who is a legitimate person versus an ad bot.  That's why I enabled Q&A for all new registrations on our facebook group.  I simply deny anyone who answers the questions with invalid (or no) answers.

@Zed Head, these updates don't look like strange people to me.  For instance, the guy you mentioned above Robert Haines appears to be a Vetran and his profile pic at Facebook looks like a rose image he uploaded for October awareness month.

I'll jump into the admin panel to find out why we are seeing more from 2015 than other years.  We should be seeing all years, not limited to 2015.

The whole thing is just weird Mike, to me, as just a normal club member browsing the site.  Strange people with no posts, never visit the site, and odd pictures.  Do they even know that they're members here?  Wouldn't be a surprise if they didn't.  Most people here have car avatars, not Facebook style horses and clowns.  I guess if you're a Facebook kind of person it looks normal, but not here.

They never visit the site so I doubt that they'll be offended that I think they're weird.  Don't worry.  I won't send them messages or stalk them on Facebook.

Funny though that just a few months ago everybody was going to quit Facebook because they were selling personal data and had poor security.  Outrage!  Zuckerberg lied to Congress!  Now it's all back to "normal" like nothing ever happened.  Even my own family members are right back on it.  They're addicted.

Society itself is getting weirder and weirder, in my opinion.  These people are just part of the background.  Carry on.  Thanks for keeping the site going.

Edit - and by the way, they're ALL from 2015.  Not more.  All.

Thank you again for replying, I know you are busy.  I'm getting them on my email "junk" folder, it's a msn.com that I've had since '94.  It has to be from facebook.  That's the only thing different I've done since it started.  I think my email address has triggered it all as I'm getting flooded with bullsh*t "linkedin" request.  I need to change my email on facebook to a dummy account I have through my ISP.

Thank you Mike!

Try adjusting your Facebook security settings to not publish your email address.  That should do the trick.

I think I found out why only 2015 is showing updates.  My developer account was limited in following years because I didn't set it up correctly to create the back-end links.  I may end up going through the process again, but, FB has made the developer process very tedious and I don't have a lot of time to mess around with it.  From what it looks like, there is no foul play, hackers, or super spy's as mentioned in your subject.  Thanks for alerting this to me.

Here's a good one.  I don't even know how to make those symbols.  No wonder the guy never came back.
